Same story, hopefully same curable virus: Every time I click on a link I'm redirected to another search engine or webpage. My IE homepage default was changed to Conduit. And I'm a Firefox user... so the problem's on both browsers, irregardless of what search engine (Bing seems to work). Also: I got this warning about how The Host went missing, and when I ran HijackThis it said that the hosts file could not be found and that I need to search manually to fix the problem. Or it tells me that on my Windows Vista I can run the program as an Administrator. My Windows Defender and Malwarebytes came up clean. I think the problem is my hijacked hosts. This is what I get for thinking I'm more tech savvy than I am and trying to download software online. Don't make the same mistakes I did, kids, and please someone show this poor, clueless wench how to get her life back.
